ENTER TO WIN: Lost In Suburbia Book and Theraderm Gift Pack

Lost in Sub_6.20.indd

It’s a suburban jungle out there!!

When syndicated columnist Tracy Beckerman trades in her TV job and cool NYC existence for the New Jersey suburbs, she doesn’t expect to also trade in her entire identity. But her new life as a stay-at-home mom knocks her for a loop in more ways than one. From the embarrassment of being ticketed while driving in her bathrobe to the challenge of making friends in the land of big hair and minivans, Beckerman shares her struggles with self-deprecating humor as she endeavors to reclaim her “cool.”

Beckerman reveals the universal trials, tribulations, and triumphs of every mom who has to figure out how to stay sane while fishing Barbie heads out of the toilet; how to laugh when your kid asks the fat cop at the donut shop if he’s having a baby; and how to look good when your post-baby butt is so big you want to hang a “Caution: Wide Load” sign behind you.

At once irreverent, hilarious, and keenly observed, Lost in Suburbia is about what you give up to become a mother—and what you get back.


Tracy Beckerman writes the syndicated humor column and blog LOST IN SUBURBIA®, which is carried by over 400 newspapers in 25 states and on 250 related websites to approximately 10 million readers. She appears frequently on TV and radio and does stand-up comedy about how to be a cool mom in the suburbs. Yes, she knows that is an oxymoron.

Tracy lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, two kids, and four goldfish named Larry.
